Who doesn’t love breakfast bread? It is a great Sunday afternoon activity when you have some spare time and extra fruit on hand. Then you are set for breakfast for the week!
- 6 tsp butter at room temperature
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 lemon's zest
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- ½ cup heavy cream
- 1½ cup flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 cup blueberries
- Juice of 2 lemons
- ½ cup sugar
- Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
- Start mixing butter and sugar. Add in lemon zest and 2 eggs. After evenly mixed add in the remaining of the wet ingredients (vanilla and cream).
- Slowly mix in flour a half cup at a time. Then baking powder and salt.
- Once everything is well mixed add the blueberries. I would suggest just gently hand stirring these in so they do not get mixed roughly and break.
- Grease your baking containers and pour in the batter. Fill each a bit over the half way point. It will rise in the oven. Let cook for 55 minutes or until nothing sticks to a fork when inserted to the top of the bread.
- While the bread is in the oven whisk together your glaze - lemon juice and sugar. Pour on top of the loaves immediately after they are taken out of the oven.
- Let bread cool for 15-20 minutes and then remove from the baking containers. Enjoy!
I LOVE banana nut bread. Ask any of my friends. They reap the benefits because I usually make more than I can eat by myself – which means loaf deliveries for all of them! But today I decided to deviate from the norm and take advantage of the extra lemons and blueberries that I had laying around the house. (Not to mention blueberry bread takes much prettier pictures than banana. :P)
Below are a few pictures of the different steps!
These blueberries are just asking to be eaten with how pretty they are!
Batter is all mixed up and ready for those beautiful blueberries!
I won’t tell anyone if you sneak a taste of the batter at this point. 😉
Don’t forget to grease your baking containers before putting the dough in! Now this bread is ready for the oven.
Oh me, oh my! Pour on the icing while the bread is still hot out of the oven. Be careful, don’t want any heat injuries in the kitchen.
20 minutes later things the bread has cooled…. I know it was hard to wait because the smell was heavenly but now the bread is ready to come out of the baking containers!
